Last night on "The Colbert Report," Colbert kicked off his "Tip Of The Hat/Wag Of The Finger" segment with a tip of his hat to the publishing company responsible for a new Tea Party coloring book. The activity book uses pictures and games to teach children about Tea Party values.
In Colbert's opinion, the coloring book is much more comprehensive than "that other conservative kids' activity book: the Republican 'Pledge to America."' It features patriotic images captioned with lengthy diatribes about limiting the Federal Government's power, because "nothing brings joy to a child than a five-clause sentence," as Colbert said.
In fact, Colbert enjoyed the book so much that he offered suggestions for other Tea Party books, such as Christine O'Donnell's "Rainy Day Book Of Masturbation Alternatives" or "Down On The Farm With Carl Paladino," which features a story about a woman and a horse that will probably confuse and scar children more than help them learn.
